Subject: RE: Lyr Add: A Call To Arms (Anne Lister)
Anne's notes, from Waiting for the Hero:
A name for England in medieval romance is Logres. In modern Welsh, that's Lloegr. Supposedly meaning "The lost lands". It strikes me very forcibly these days that Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall are getting more and more sure of their identity while England gets more and more confused. Or maybe that's just me? While we have simply heaps of sleeping heroes dotted around the landscape, just waiting for our call.
So I thought I'd call them.
